    Hello All,
    Is the DJI-PH2-P13 compatible with phantom 3? It seems to be thrust boosted, various sites vary in description, not sure if the hub is composite. By the way, what is a composite hub? Does it have aluminum threaded into plastic?

    A composite hub is 100% plastic. There is no metal buried beneath the plastic. If a prop has a metal hub, you'll be able to clearly see the metal in the section of the hub that screws onto the motor.

    All of the props listed here are compatible with the P3.

    Here's what the hub of a composite prop looks like:

    The prop will thread on, but you should stay away from metal hub props for the P3-- a composite hub is basically a special "plastic type" material that allows the P3 props to be "self tightening" by using the motor torque when it starts.
